Campervans for Festivals and Events
There’s nothing quite like the great British tradition of summer festivals, where likeminded revellers come together to dance, drink, laugh and live life to the full.
While we might be renowned in this country for our penchant for al fresco festivities, we’re also famous for our stoic attitude to the weather during festival season, seeing the party through to the end regardless of mud, rain and storms!
For festival-goers who seek a more comfortable experience however, opting for a campervan over a tent offers additional luxuries without forgoing the outdoor experience. Here are just a few reasons a VW campervan is perfect for festival or event accommodation, and what’s on this summer’s schedule to inspire a trip:
No setting up
It’s easily the worst bit of going to a British summer festival, having to park miles away from the campsite then trudge with all the necessary tent, bedding, cool boxes, clothes and a hundred other things to find a spot that’s not too close (but not too far away) from all the facilities!
Thankfully a campervan makes that part of the festival experience redundant. You’ll get directed to your parking spot and once there you won’t need to do a thing… except maybe open a cold beer and decide which band you’re going to watch first.
No taking down
Then when you’re exhausted from partying too hard and just want to get home to a bath, there isn’t the dreaded taking down of the tent once the music’s stopped. Simply stick the keys in the ignition and head back to Wander Beyond to drop off the van and pick up your own vehicle – which we can put in our secure, indoor premises.
You have the power
No need to queue up at a food van for an expensive bacon butty after a night of over-indulgence, as each Wander Beyond campervan has a cooker, gas and all the necessary equipment to make a homemade fry-up. The running water means a hot cuppa will start the day right, and the fridge will keep drinks cool so there’s no need to pay extortionate festival prices.
In practical terms, having your own power not only means those added luxuries, but also the convenience of being able to charge your phone, and keep essentials such a medication or baby milk at the right temperature.
